Google must bring this feature to its Google talk app. You don't always have access to a desktop computer.

Calling rates are very much effected by the toll charges the country charges carriers for accessing their country's phone system. That's why neighboring countries may have wildly differing rates.
I don't think Google is charging extra for some countries to subsidize free calling for others.
